French Counter-Strike side Team Vitality may opt to not participate at the upcoming BLAST Pro Series: Moscow 2019.

According to multiple sources with knowledge of the situation, Team Vitality are strongly considering withdrawing from BLAST Moscow. 

With less than a week remaining until the tournament, they have yet to officially add a fifth player to their roster.

Team Vitality announced during the StarLadder Berlin Major Playoffs that they had benched veteran player Nathan ‘NBK-’ Schmitt, just two days after their elimination in the quarterfinals. 

It has been reported that the options for who will replace NBK- come down to two players, Fabien ‘kioShiMa’ Fiey or Richard ‘shox’ Papillon. Should they pick a replacement immediately, it will only leave them a couple days to prepare for the event. 

DreamHackWith NBK- now benched, Vitality might not have enough players for BLAST Moscow 2019.

BLAST Pro Series: Moscow 2019 is a two day event that features six total teams and a $250,000 USD prize pool. 

Scheduled to attend the event are Team Vitality, ENCE, MIBR, Natus Vincere, NiP, and either ForZe or AVANGAR. 

The latter two teams are scheduled to play against each other for the final spot, but could both qualify should Team Vitality miss the event, according to one source.

Team Vitality won ECS Season 7 and cs_summit 4 while also finishing in second place at ESL One: Cologne 2019 with NBK- on the team. 

Their quarterfinal appearance at the StarLadder Berlin Major was their best finish at a Major since the inception of the team and organization. 


How to view your CSGO stats in-game with new tracking feature

The Operation Broken Fang update for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has introduced a new way for players to track their stats in-game. Here’s how you can use it to improve your play.

Trying to find your in-game stats for CS:GO has been difficult in the past, to say the least. Players have had to rely on third-party sites, which can be either unsecure or inaccurate, or both at the same time.

However, Valve has finally listened to the community’s pleas. They have shipped a new, in-game stat tracking feature, that players can start using from Day 1 of the new Operation Broken Fang update.

While it doesn’t retroactively track players’ stats, it’s a new starting point for CS:GO.

What stats does the CS:GO in-game tracker follow?

The new CS:GO in-game stat tracker will track almost everything a player could want. It’ll count your matches played, your ADR, KD ratios, and more. Not only that, but it’ll break it down by map and gun too.

That’s not the only thing the in-game stat tracker can do. It also has a heat map for where you commonly find kills, deaths, and where you hold angles. It also breaks down where you hit players, so you can figure out what you need to do to fix your aim.

It is the one stop shop for all you need to know about your CS:GO game, and where you need to improve. Getting picked off at one position all the time? You can see it on the heatmap and change things up. Not sure if you’re better with the P2000 or the USP? You can find that out.

The CS:GO in-game stat tracker is a handy new tool.

How to view your CS:GO stats in-game

It’s super easy to check your CS:GO stats in-game. You can basically do it from the main menu. Here’s where you can find it.

  1. Open up CS:GO and go to your dashboard (main menu).
  2. Click on Operation Stats near the bottom of the dashboard.
  3. Select the parameters you want to track.
    1. All 5v5, All Wingman, etc.
    2. Past 14 days, Past 30 days, Past 90 days, All time
  4. Analyze your stats.

The stats are currently limited to Operation Broken Fang, but it’s likely the feature will stick around after the event wraps up.

It’s a huge upgrade for CS:GO players who are looking to improve their game. Now, you can definitively know if your teammates are holding you back or not.
